Asco: Treatment With Liso-cel

Outpatient treatment with lisocabtagene maraleucel (liso-cel) across a variety of clinical sites from three ongoing clinical studies in relapsed/refractory (R/R) large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL).

Abstract No : 8037

Abstract Type : Oral Abstract Session

Indication : LBCL

Intervention : Lisocabtagene Maraleucel

Company : Juno Therapeutics, a Bristol-Myers Squibb company

Technology : CAR T Cell Therapy


At data cutoff, 53 pts had received liso-cel on Study Day 1 and were monitored as outpts (university, n = 33; non-university, n = 20), including pts ≥65 y of age (n = 23) and with high tumor burden (SPD ≥50 cm2; n = 16). Any grade CRS and NEs were reported in 18 (34%) and 14 pts (26%), respectively. Severe CRS and/or NEs occurred in only 2 pts (4%) and were reversible. Median (range) time to onset of CRS and NEs was 5 (2–9) and 8.5 (3–22) d, respectively. Tocilizumab and/or corticosteroids for treatment of CRS and/or NEs were required in 8 pts (15%). Overall, 30 pts (57%) required hospitalization post-treatment, with a median (range) time to hospitalization post-treatment of 5.5 (2–22) d; 9 pts (17%) were hospitalized Study Day 4 or earlier. Two pts required ICU-level care. There were no grade 5 treatment-emergent AEs. Safety in pts monitored as outpts was comparable across types of sites. Overall response rate was 81% (95% CI, 68–91). Safety and efficacy were consistent with data from inpts across the 3 studies (N = 270).


Pts with R/R LBCL were successfully treated with liso-cel and monitored for CAR T cell-related toxicity in the outpt setting across different types of sites. Incidences of severe CRS, NEs, and early hospitalization were low; 43% of pts did not require hospitalization. A larger dataset will be presented, including comparisons of outpts vs inpts and sites of care.


Liso-cel boosts confidence by releasing outpatient administration and hospitalization data, safety and efficacy consistent with in patient data.
